§ 7.7 p.m.
§ Report received.
§ Clause 4 [Prevention of pollution from ships: further power to implement international agreements]:
§ Lord Mustill moved the amendment:
§ Page 3, line 32, leave out ("(3)") and insert ("(4)")
§ The noble Lord said: My Lords, my amendment would simply correct a minor typographical error in Clause 4 where what should be a reference to Section 20(4) (e) of the Merchant Shipping Act 1979 erroneously appears as a reference to Section 20(3) (e). I beg to move.
§ Lord Clinton-Davis
My Lords, I should like to welcome the noble Lord, Lord Mustill, and to commend the superb way in which he has moved this highly controversial amendment.
§ On Question, amendment agreed to.
